The Rise of 5G Technology

5G Technology's emergence as a prodigy heads back to the year 2019 when it was made commercially available to the people of Chicago and Minneapolis. It is the 5th generation of cellular or wireless technology that has the ability to make businesses more streamlined and also offers phenomenal speed to its customers. 5G is developed to stretch into new spectrum for example the mm Wave. It provides users’ faster access to information, is more reliable and has massive network capacity. In future, it is expected that 5G will transform the way we use smartphones and other mobile devices with a minimum latency of 1 millisecond. Plainly, this advanced version of technology is taking us to the path of game changing possibilities since it is ten times faster in comparison to the previous 4G LTE version that has low buffering. With incredible performance and enhanced efficiency, it is providing a uniform user experience and connecting a number of new industries.

Back in the days (in 1980's), when 1G was rolled out it only delivered analogue voice and a decade later 2G came and offered digital voice. As more and more technological progress was made in 2000's, 3G introduced mobile data, too. Later, in 2010 4G LTE brought us into the world of mobile broadband. Now the latest and most updated version of mobile network, 5G is designed to deliver exceptional connectivity to people around the globe. With breakneck speed and insignificant latency, 5G technology is all set to stretch out its mobile sphere in new realms providing immediate responses. It will touch many industries in a supportive and favorable way and its impact will be much greater than the previous mobile networks. Moreover, it is playing a crucial role in driving global growth, as a report revealed that it will create 22.8 million jobs (there will be a need for app developers and content creators etc.). Currently, it has been adopted by 70 plus countries, worldwide.

One unique feature of 5G technology is that it is designed to support the upcoming future services also known as upward compatibility. It is mainly being used across different types of associated services:

1. Improved mobile broadband: 5G has not only improved our smartphones functioning but is also enhancing our experience by taking us in an immersive and interactive world of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. All this is possible because data rates are steady, consistent and faster, latency is minimal and cost per bit is very low.

2. Mission critical communications: Another quality of 5G is that it provides ultra-reliable low latency communication. This is vigorously transforming industries and introducing new services. Vehicles, gadgets, medical processes and procedures (remote robotic surgery) and critical infrastructure can be handled and controlled through remotes.

3. Massive IoT: 5G technology provides finest connectivity solutions without wastage and clings to efficiency and low cost. It can minimize data rates, and efficiently utilize power and mobility. This allows it to smoothly connect the countless sensors lodged in different devices and virtually connect people.

Altogether, 5G is a high flier technology and is setting the stage for massive disruption for many sectors such as manufacturing, mining, construction, telecommunication etc. The number of IoT devices that are powered by 5G is expected to increase to 27 B till the year 2025.
